Creative Curriculum
  • The Creative Curriculum focuses on learning

  • The Creative Curriculum encourages children to
    learn by experiencing materials from a hands on
    perspective.
  • The Creative Curriculum balances both
    teacher-directed and child-initiated learning,
    with an emphasis on responding to children's
    learning styles and building on their strengths

    about why they are important. If you treat these
    rules seriously, your child will also.

    enter the building through the side doors closest
    to our classroom. There will be an adult

    after that time, your child will be considered
    tardy and you must bring them to the office.

    them up at the same place as arrival. PLEASE
